Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream Review

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream Review:

The cream is the last step in Etude House’s Moistfull Collagen skincare series which claims to aid in firmness, elasticity and hydration. As I am approaching my late twenties, anti-ageing has become an important part of my skincare regimen. Since when I stumbled across this product at Etude House sales, I decided to give it a try.

[REVIEW] Pony Effect Ultimate Prep Primer Hydrate

Pony Effect Ultimate Prep Primer Hydrate Review

Pony Effect Ultimate Prep Primer Hydrate Review:

I’m sure every K-beauty enthusiasts must have heard Pony’s name before, at least once in their lives. Pony, or Park Hye Mi, was an ulzzang (best face/someone with beautiful face) from South Korea and she started getting more famous after her segment Pony Beauty Diary on InsiteTV became a big hit.

Since then she started her own makeup tutorial channel and became more famous internationally and honestly her makeup skill is no joke! She even worked as Korean idols makeup artist. She announced her collaboration with Memebox but then she made her own makeup line called Pony Effect.

I do have oily yet rough skin texture and it’s very hard for me to find a good product that will match my skin condition. If I used product for oily skin, my skin texture becomes more rough and dry but if I used moisturizing product, it makes my skin produces more sebum.

After researching about my skin, turns out I have a dehydrated skin and hydrating products will be the best solution for me. That’s why I choose this primer because it has ‘Hydrate’ option whereas her other primers are for mattifying and moisturizing only.

[REVIEW] Unicharm Silcot Uruuru Sponge Facial Cotton Pads

Unicharm Silcot Uruuru Sponge Facial Cotton Pads Review

Unicharm Silcot Uruuru Sponge Facial Cotton Pads Review:

It’s crazy how the deeper you fall into the skincare rabbit hole, the more you find out how different things can be. Case in point: cotton pads. But, cotton pads are all the same, right? Wrong!

The texture, its ability to soak up product, how easy it may or may not fall apart… the more I experiment with various cotton pads, the more I find how alarmingly different yet similar they can be.

But it wasn’t until I gave in and got my hands on the Silcot did I begin to realize how important these things could be in the grander scheme of a skincare routine.

[REVIEW] New 2018 The Face Shop Sweet Apeach Edition Kakao Friends Oil Control Water Cushion V201 Apricot Beige

The Face Shop Sweet Apeach Edition Kakao Friends Oil Control Water Cushion V201 Apricot Beige Review

The Face Shop Sweet Apeach Edition Kakao Friends Oil Control Water Cushion V201 Apricot Beige Review:

Another newest and cutest makeup collaboration this month! And now it comes from The Face Shop X Kakao Friends, Sweet Apeach edition! I was crazily impassioned when got a sneak peek of this collaboration from The Face Shop Facebook Page few days before it was officially launched on May 7th. I didn’t pay much attention for The Face Shop X Kakao Friends Hoodie Ryan edition. But this Sweet Apeach edition is totally cute and adorable (maybe because it’s pink!). I couldn’t resist it.

This Sweet Apeach edition comes with super cute cushion case, Baby Sunscreen Cushion, lip tint, eyeshadow palette, blotting powder, sun stick, hand cream, body wash, body lotion and they even have Dr. Belmeur soothing gel cream and tone up cream in Sweet Apeach jar. Ah, all are so cute! The Face Shop really knows how to take my money.

I finally bought this Special Cushion Case Sweet Apeach edition on May, 6th. Right, a day before its official launch (and I regretted why I didn’t wait until the D-day because they gave a special Apeach pouch as free gift for buying certain products. I cried T T ). I picked the Oil Control Water Cushion for the refill of my Sweet Apeach cushion case. So, are you ready to meet the cute Apeach?

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] New 2018 Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip 10 Retro Rose

New 2018 Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip 10 Retro Rose Review

Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip 10 Retro Rose was purchased by Cosmeperks.

To be honest I never heard anything about this product until I visited Aritaum’s website. I think Mamonde didn’t promote this lip tint as much as they did with the infamous Creamy Tint Color Balm (and the fact that Park Shin Hye used it on her drama really made a huge hype). I have the Creamy Tint Color Balm and I really liked it so I was excited to try this one and see if it’s better or not.

Among the 10 shades, I chose the shade 10 Retro Rose. From the shade range, I think some are not too different with the original line of Creamy Tint Color Balm. Most of the shades are reds but they do have some oranges and pinks as well.

It’s a little bit hard to find this on my country and I guess 10 Retro Rose is one of the best selling shade since there’s no stock for this shade on every online stores that I visited, even YesStyle and Amazon didn’t have this shade on stock! I guess I’m really lucky to be able to get this shade without knowing it’s the best selling one.

[REVIEW] New 2018 Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner

New 2018 Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner Review

Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner was purchased by Cosmeperks.

The new version of the famous Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Toner is finally here! And I am so excited to try it since I do know the popularity of the original version of this toner is no joking. Actually, I had a plan to try the original version few months ago but two friends said that the original version caused breakouts on their sensitive skin, and that’s because of the essential oils content in the ingredients list. Well, I guess some of us have a same unpleasant experience with the original version, and many people out there do.

Seemed like Dear, Klairs heard their fans shouted out about that issue and, finally, they recreated their famous toner to Supple Preparation Unscented Toner. Basically, this toner is same and as great as the original version, but it’s fragrance-free. It’s made without essential oils thus all of us with all skin types (even the sensitive one) can enjoy it without worry. It is Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Toner version 2, The Unscented!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Nature Republic Real Gel Tint 03 Orange

Nature Republic Real Gel Tint 03 Orange Review

Nature Republic Real Gel Tint 03 Orange Review:

I was so ecstatic when I saw Nature Republic official store finally opened near where I’m living! I went there when it had its grand opening and it was so chaotic because it’s too crowded.

I was swatching their lip tints section and found this tint. The price wasn’t expensive and the swatch was pretty good. Actually I’m not an avid fan of Nature Republic, I rarely tried their products and the only item I have from them is the Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Gel 92% (which I’m not to fond of).

After I bought it, I searched some reviews about this product but so far I only found a small amount of reviews so I thought maybe this product wasn’t too hyped both in Korea and internationally. That just made me more curious to try the lip tint.

[REVIEW] Etude House Color My Brows 04 Natural Brown

Etude House Color My Brows 04 Natural Brown Review

Etude House Color My Brows 04 Natural Brown Review:

Around two years ago I tried an eyebrow mascara and it was amazing. I popped it open, brushed my eyebrows, had no stray hairs and nothing else to do there as it also filled in the gaps between eyebrows and all. So, since my eyebrow shadow (it’s just eyeshadow I use to fill in my brows) is almost ending… it was time for me to get something else!

Now, I always have dark brown eyeshadow around, so I was looking to replace my lighter option that makes me look less… vintage. Less angry. Less like Snow White. I chose Natural Brown because the name indicates naturalness? I bought it online (instead of taking my fat butt to the store) so it was almost like I was doing it blindly. Let me tell you beforehand, on and on it went quite well!

[REVIEW] April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Pink SPF 50+ PA+++ 01 Pink

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Pink SPF 50+ PA+++ 01 Pink Review

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Pink SPF 50+ PA+++ 01 Pink Review:

The infamous magic snow cushion.. I’d say that it’s definitely one of the top 3 most widely known Korean cushion foundations. I’ve been wanting to try it for a while but as I was about to purchase it, I stumbled upon this one. It had a great discount and I loved the packaging so I decided to give this one a try first.

Firstly, I’d like to clarify that I know, since I have PIE, I’m probably the last person who could use a pink tinted cushion. However, I don’t have hyperpigmentation all over my face! The areas where most people (and I) like to tone are the areas where I don’t have hyperpigmentation (except for my cheeks, that’s where all the redness is). Even if I had completely clear skin, I still wouldn’t use it all over my face. The more layers of products you put on your skin, the cakier it’ll look.
